RPM dependency Error


I am trying to install LIcq on my redhat linux 8 machine
I got the RPM licq-1.2.7-rh8.0.i386.rpm

I run the following command

rpm -i licq-1.2.7-rh8.0.i386.rpm

and I get the following error

"However, I do have and"

Yes, but you may need a later version. Use rpm to check what version numbers of the failed dependencies you have installed.

Try typing:

rpm -Uvh licq-1.2.7-rh8.0.i386.rpm

To see if it can be updated, instead of installed. Otherwise, simply remove the old version and install the new as jailbait suggested...
